How are you doing? I am in great shape, fully charged and revitalized to face the 30 days of April.
On my part, I have a great reason to be so perky. I’ve just got back from my European holiday and it turned out to be the much needed break I needed (even deserved) from work.
I had an amazing time and am looking to get back to business with renewed energy. Europe was fantastic but I have to admit being back in Chicago really feels like home.
Speaking of Chicago, I can’t get over the weather in the city. Reliable sources tell me the last few weeks were nothing like the regular March I was expecting it to be – cold and dreary. In fact, it’s quite pleasant for this time of the year – the perfect weather for cleaning out your backyard, setting up the grills, and organizing a barbeque.
I am not the only one with this idea. On my last trip to Costco, the store was bursting at its seams with people buying patio furniture and grilling equipment.
After having my toes trampled on half a dozen times, I decided the wisest thing to do was retreat quietly and come back at a time when things weren’t quite so chaotic!
Which reminds me – all hell broke loose on the basketball courts the other day, what with Mizzou losing to unpopular Norfolk in the NCAA! For those of you who missed out on this one, Missouri, one of the pre-tournament favorites, had their hands full right from the starting whistle.
The final score-line – 86-84 – was the stuff of nightmares for them. Great for Norfolk fans, but it’s really mind-boggling – the surprises life throws at you!
Anyway, I guess these things do happen. The sports world is so unpredictable. Thankfully, you don’t have to deal with such uncertainties in my newsletter. I promised you a Coupon of the Month and a Coupon of the Month is what you get – every month with every issue.

Regular mattress cleanings are essential not just because it is a good housekeeping practice.

If these symptoms sound familiar, it is indicative of the fact that you’ve already been exposed to dust mites and other allergens.

Tip of the Month
This month we are going to look at HOW TO REMOVE CANDLE WAX FROM CARPET.
Candles can be oh so romantic but getting the wax out of your carpet is guaranteed to throw cold water on your best laid plans. I came across great video I saw on YouTube and I felt I just had to share it with you. This gentleman has done a good job of cleaning out all the wax from the carpet.
Before I move on I’d like to share a thought with you – why are all my tips related to carpet cleaning or home cleaning? Surely there’s more to life than that. Like, for instance – FOOD!
I am what they call a multi-faceted personality. One of the things I am really interesting in doing is cooking. In my free time I enjoy looking up recipes and cooking videos. My favorite is the ones where they take a really simple dish and use an interesting twist to make it absolutely awesome!
This is one such video where Janine Falvo, executive chef of Briza in Atlanta, Georgia and former chef of California’s Carneros Bistro & Wine Bar releases the poached egg from its humble state and turns it into a lip-smacking gourmet dish. I tried it and I loved it! I am sure if you try it, you are going to love it too.
Here’s how you make the ultimate poached eggs:
Now that our bellies are full, I have a great video for you to watch!
You are not the only one who enjoys a clean rug.
